Feature request: BI "alert agent" for Android

Post by marklyn » Sat Oct 20, 2018 12:54 am

I regularly use 1 or 2 cameras to monitor something specific (ie: a gate, rat/mouse watcher, critter cam, etc.). I have alerts set on those to of course go to my phone but I don't always have my phone on/with me at home. But, I do pretty much have an android tablet somewhere nearby or in the next room. Was wondering if a feature request for some type of "alert agent" could be added (installed on an android device/tablet) that would provide an alert for non-phone devices that otherwise cannot receive text messages. Sure would be handy for me :)

You can use push messages to the BI Android app on the tablets

I don't think that will work in my case. I'd have to leave the BI app running in the foreground on all/any android devices, or so it seems.
